I have had good luck with Asus laptops. My latest one is an 2020 Asus ROG G531GT 15.6 Inch FHD Gaming Laptop (9th Gen Intel 6-Core i7-9750H up to 4.50 GHz, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 512GB SSD + 1TB HDD, GeForce GTX 1650

Yes I saw the DPR article on some Asus laptop solutions and found it intriguing:

However, I believe a desktop will do a good job too. This time around, I'm looking at desktops but it doesn't mean laptops are no good.

How long does it take when you open a Sigma raw, for SPP to be done with initial rendering? How long does a slider adjustment take?

Which camera?

fp L, if you have one, or fp, or any of the Quattros.

FYI, I upgraded to 32 GB ram mostly for video.

The C: internal SSD Drive is existing 512Mb from manuf.

I upgraded my D: internal drive to 2 TB SSD. My image files are on this drive.

DP3 quattro - open raw file - 2 seconds, click monochrome - 4 seconds, write jpeg file - 7 seconds.

FP L - open raw file - 2 seconds, click monochrome - 7 seconds, write jpeg file - 7 seconds.

There is no card reader.

No USB C.

Only 3 regular USB

Screen is okay, but I have mine plugged into a LCD TV with a remote mouse and keyboard.
